Originating from the Basque region of France, the Espelette pepper is distinctively smoky, sweet and mildly hot. It brings stand-out flavor and vibrant color to this zesty, Mediterranean-herbed rub. Use it to enhance the taste of grilled meats, burgers, vegetables, seafood and poultry.

Mix all the ingredients together in small bowl, until well blended. Store in a tightly covered jar, in a cool, dry place.


Piment d’Espelette can be found in specialty food shops, or online. This rub is also great on plancha grilled meats, burgers, vegetables, fish and poultry. Use Basque-Inspired Rub with Espelette Pepper to prepare Crusted Fish and Ratatouille a la Plancha.
